talking snow: haiku

the shop clerk’s warning:

the road may be greasy

it’s got that skiff


I knew she was talking about the slippery conditions outside, the fresh layer of snow but ‘skiff’ is a new word for me. Apparently it is a colloquial term used in Canada (where I live) and the Northern States for a light flurry or cover of snow.
